Mr. Pim Passes By 

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 4, 2 p.m. Continues through Aug. 10 2013
Besides being the world-famous creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, A.A. Milne was also a respected playwright. Alas, his works for the kiddies, including the poetry volume Now We Are Six, essentially relegated his “grown-up” works into the dusty attic of literary history. With this Nashville premiere, Carrick Productions rejuvenates Milne’s dramatic legacy, reviving his prim but charming 1919 comedy. In it, the absent-minded Mr. Carraway Pim drops by the formal manor house of a Buckinghamshire country estate shortly after World War I (Downton Abbey fans, take note) and innocently relates a travel story that upends the household. Milne’s opus offers witty dialogue and high-spirited characters, and the cast’s veteran members — Rick Seay, Caroline Davis, Wesley Paine, Gregg Colson — are all more than capable of infusing the story with the lighthearted vigor it demands. Seay directs, and the gifted June Kingsbury has been enlisted to provide the Edwardian-era costumes. (Pim trivia: The 1921 film version of the play was directed by Albert Ward.)
